Notes of clean and fresh citrus, fig and spiced marzipan create an enticing entry to this wine. Combined with the underlying complex notes of oyster shell and a beautiful minerality, this wine has bags of character on the nose. The palate follows in flavour profile with layers of textural complexity and a ripe clean acidity and a long elegant finish.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Jackson Estate has been quietly handcrafting beautiful wines in Marlborough for over 25 years. You may have heard of the brand, but the winery is boutique and like us, our kiwi friends are a small and extremely passionate team. For Jackson Estate it's important to combine highly advanced winemaking techniques with an old world hands on approach to produce premium quality wines with finesse, elegance and longevity. That's why they call themselves Modern Pioneers.
The Grey Ghost is the giant gum tree planted in 1867 by John's great grandmother Alice and today graces all Jackson Estate wine labels.
